    Some better retros include 1994 Chicagos and black/red, 01 Japan releases. Again I want to make the argument that if you're paying $160 for a Jordan 1 from '15-'17 you're getting the same tier, same quality of materials. If you were really getting anything better, you'd be hit with premium prices like with pinnacles. Softer, more tumbled looking, that doesn't equal good quality.

    Yeah, it had to do with the uniform colors jordan wore when shattering the glass. The away version (to me) smacked of money grab by JB. And the leather on those was made to look like the sbb leather but wasn’t close.

    Even though the Original SBB just added orange, it feels more like it’s its own shoe than the 2.0 which look exactly like orange Chicago 1s

    Partially, but people also forget that SBBs were Snkrs raffle only hence the scarcity.

    I've been looking forward to the Wheat 1s from the jump, so it's good to finally see them in motion. These are pretty dope IMO.

    color-blocking is waaaay better on the 2.0s


    don't know why people get so wet over the "quality" of the made-in-china leather on the 1.0s or any other nike, though

    y'all get into arguments over which mcdonald's burger is the best too?

    2.0 is better, and I have both. Unpopular opinion, but just my thoughts.

    One thing about the “a-1” leather, it’s really only great on one of the side panels. The rest is good but whatever. They do still get glitter.
    You do realize if you say “a-1 leather” you may be a corny hypebeast.

    Edit: I realize “corny” is a hypebeast term as well.
